A woman lived with a spider in her ear for five years but never knew until she went to hospital complaining of itching only to be told she had a spider in her ear.
She went to China’s Changsha Central Hospital and complained of itching in her ear. She was told by doctors that there was a spider in her ear canal for five days and she did not know.
To remove the spider which was causing discomfort to Ms. Lee, doctors used a saline solution to flush out the spider to avoid having the spider burrow deeper inside the canal or bite her.
An x-ray photo showed how the spider was literally living in the woman’s ear.
